Christine de Pizan (1364/5-1430?) was arguably the first woman to support herself and her family as a professional writer and public intellectual. In recent decades, recognition of her importance for womens studies, political thought, art history, and literary criticism has prompted a boom in Christine studies. Despite this proliferation of scholarly output, no manageable introduction to this important figure has appeared in more than a generation.

Designed as an introduction for students as well as a convenient, one-volume resource for medievalists and specialists in related fields, this authoritative work is both concise and comprehensive. It includes a complete account of Christine de Pizans life and times, summaries and commentary on all of her many works, and analyses of her sources and influences. This exhaustive yet accessible book is an essential reference for anyone interested in Christine studies, womens history, and late-medieval France.
